pti may blog hop



it's all about beautiful, colorful blooms this time around for papertrey ink's may blog hop. i chose to go with the "orange bouquet" color palette. i bought some watercolor paper the last time i was at joanne's and this is the first time i've used it. it's not as pretty as i had imagined it would be at first...i think i need some more practice at the whole stamping/watercoloring lol. i was ready to scrap it, but then stepped away for a bit. after i came back and added the sentiment, i liked it a whole lot better. i guess it's not that bad after all :) thanks for stopping by today! happy memorial day!

  8. I'm glad you walked away for a bit - watercolor doesn't always behave the way we want it to, but the effect is really beautiful!

  11. In my opinion, watercoloring is so much harder than it looks, but I love the softness it created on your card.
